This blend of all five Bordeaux varieties is consistently one of Beaulieu’s most interesting but overlooked wines. The ’04 is certainly a lovely, polished wine right now, with lush black currant, cherry and smoky oak flavors and a lingering finish.
Bright, full ruby-red. Ripe but reserved nose offers black fruits, licorice, minerals and violet; comes across as livelier today than the 2004 Private Reserve. Then juicy and savory in the mouth, showing a touch of sweetness and bright framing acidity to the dark fruit, tobacco and mocha flavors. Less suave than the Private Reserve, and more about fruit. Still has a rather firm tannic spine but this blend should evolve and deepen with further bottle aging. (ST) 90+?
A full and beefy blend of Cabernet Sauvignon with Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec, Tapestry is pulled mostly from BV vineyards 1 and 2 in Rutherford, the same sources that provide grapes for BV's Georges de Latour Private Reserve Cabernet. It's spicy and round, with fine tannins worked to a smooth dark-chocolate richness. A smoky red for a steak sizzling off the grill.
The 2004 Tapestry Proprietary Red Wine is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec from estate vineyards. It possesses ethereal elegance and balance along with more red and blue fruit flavors and less oak. Medium-bodied, pure and ripe, it can be drunk now or cellared for another decade. (RP)
